Air Lease delivered one new Airbus A321-200neo LR aircraft on long-term lease to Air Astana. This aircraft, featuring Pratt & Whitney PW1133G engines, is the fifth new A321-200neo LR to deliver to Air Astana from Air Lease’s order book with Airbus. In addition to the five A321-200neo LRs, Air Astana also has one A320-200, two A320-200neos and one A321-200neo on long-term lease from Air Lease.
“ALC is pleased to deliver this fifth A321-200neo LR aircraft to Air Astana today,” Steven F. Udvar-Házy, executive chairman of Air Lease, said. “Our team has been thrilled to assist the airline with their long-term fleet modernization program.”
“We are pleased to have taken delivery of our fifth A321LR from our partners at ALC,” Peter Foster, president and CEO of Air Astana, said. “The LR, with its improved range, lower emissions and outstanding two class configuration, including a 16 lie-flat seat business class cabin, is proving immensely popular with customers and crews alike as we expand our international network following last year’s significant reduction.”
Air Astana is the principal airline and flag carrier of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
